This hotel is ideally situated for major tourist attractions. Unfortunately our room had a side view so no Acropolis or temple of Zeus for us from the room. However the rooftop garden where we had breakfast had 360 panoramic views - fabulous. Rooms were fairly small but comfortable and clean. Some rooms have a bath but we had a shower...

Despite the small lifts, this was a very pleasant hotel in a great location. No better way to start each day than on the roof top restaurant with a view to the Temple of Zeus on one side and the Acropolis on the other. Great selection for breakfast and the location puts you in walking distance of the centre of...

The view from the roof top restaurant is outstanding,and, we were given a room even though we arrived several hours before check-in. The food at the roof top restaurant was very good. The issue we did have was a coffee cup left in the bathroom with lipstick on it and what appeared to be a blood stain on a bed...

Since the very first day of our arrival, we have been taken care of by the friendly, polite, available and always smiling staff. The hotel is close to the Acropolis and its garden roof restaurant offers a fantastic view on the Parthenon. On top of that, the food of the restaurant is absolutely delicious. I highly recommand this hotel!

We recently stayed at the Athens Gate, the rooms are simple and the bathroom is very small, however the rooms are very clean and are very worth it for the views. Breakfast is served at the rooftop restaurant where you have an amazing view of the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus. John the concierge was very helpful, gave us...

I had visited this hotel for my honeymoon and I had the best time. I had booked a stay for just 2 nights so it was important to me to stay close to central Greece where I could soak in the authenticity in the streets of Plaka and Monastiraki. We had the most priscine view of the city and Acropolis...

We had a very pleasant stay at the hotel. The room was small but well appointed and we had a lovely view of the Parthenon, not just the Acropolis, which you can see from many places, but the Parthenon lit up and exquisite. The staff was friendly and the included breakfast generous and varied. Perfect location for all the sights....

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel. We had a room facing the Temple of Zeus on the third floor with an amazing view and balcony. The room was spacious and comfortable.

This is a great hotel for a decent price. It is extremely close to many of the historical sites of the old city. An entrance to the Acropolis is about 5 minutes away (walking), and the Temple of Olympian Zeus is directly across the street. One improvement would be expanding the hours of the rooftop restaurant. When I first arrived...

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
